What the heck is HOUSED, anyway? 

HOUSED is a comedy webseries about 7 college kids trapped together when the apocalypse hits during a house party. Though the fate of the world is looking grim, the true test will be figuring out how to survive...each other. As they face the challenges of post-apocalyptic life, they will find out that friendships can be made in the oddest situations and heroes and villains are not so easy to distinguish.

But, like...why are you doing it? 

We're so happy you asked! We are all young passionate artists/students who believe in the importance of creating our own work. We don’t want to wait for opportunities to open up for us...we want to create them for ourselves! We wanted characters that are fully dimensional, real, unique, interesting, and relatable. One of the most important things we think about while writing is making HOUSED something that we would want to watch ourselves. We want to deliver material that is funny, relevant, well-written, creative, intelligent--and we believe we are doing all of that with HOUSED.

Okay...but why should I give you my money?

We don’t need much, so even a small donation will go a long way for us. Our budget is $2000 for a full season (twelve episodes)...which is TINY. The money will be used for props/set dressing, food for the set, a small stipend for our hardworking crew, and equipment rentals. None of the actors will be receiving payment--almost everyone is working on a volunteer basis. HOUSED was specifically designed with a small budget in mind, so we minimize our costs by only using one location for every episode and a skeleton crew. We believe that an awesome show doesn't need to be synonymous with a huge budget, and that we can make a totally kickass series with next to nothing. 

Risks and challenges

As with any project, ours comes with risks and challenges--but we've set ourselves up for the best chance of success through lots of careful planning. The biggest danger to our production is the show not catching on, and dying out due to lack of viewership.
